I'm all for having temporary files out of the source tree. It is not going to be easy though...

Yes, i delete the makefiles from the tree. Do you know what was the reason they did not like that.

I saw that Greg put one of these files in, that's why he's on cc: :)

I guess the reason is something like, being able to run the test manually if it is failing. However, I would say that in this case you should run the test with LLDB_DO_CLEANUP=NO and that will leave all the temporaries (including the Makefile) for analysis. I think the common case (running the testsuite without failures) should be as painless as possible and in case you really need to debug, rerunning a single test is not a big deal.
